If you’re considering constructing a new home in Florida where the temperatures are typically ideal for outdoor activities all year round, you may be looking for ways to maximize your future yard space.
Depending on your particular taste and lifestyle, there are several options that you could choose from, such as adding a(n):
- In-ground swimming pool. Unlike the Midwest or northern states, where pools are typically emptied by mid-fall, Florida residents can usually make use of this amenity 12 months out of the year.
- Fire pit / fireplace on the patio. Even in Florida, the temperatures may occasionally dip – especially after the sun sets. So, having access to a fire pit – or even a built-in fireplace – on a back patio can provide you with a relaxing way to still enjoy the outdoors.
- Outdoor kitchen. Depending on your culinary skills, you may opt to add an outdoor kitchen, complete with an oven, fridge, island, and seating area.
- Professional landscaping. If you’re more apt to sit and enjoy nature, going with a professionally landscaped outdoor space can provide you with a great way to do so, while reading or listening to music. A gazebo or other covered area can add a nice touch.
Having more usable and functional space outdoors will not only allow you to take advantage of Florida’s warm weather, but with some COVID-related social distancing still recommended, it can also provide you with a way to entertain friends and family in a “safer” environment.
